Deputy Sues Over Washington Police Dog Bite

April 26, 2012

A Snohomish County sheriff’s deputy in Washington is suing the Lynnwood Police Department over a dog bite.

Deputy Marcus Dill says Lynnwood police failed to properly train the K-9 officer and his dog, Sandor.

Sandor bit Dill on the leg in 2009 when they were working together, and the wound required stitches and caused him to miss some work.

The Daily Herald reported Lynnwood police declined to comment on the lawsuit.

Sandor was retired in September after eight years on the force in which the dog helped make more than 100 arrests.

    What was he doing that the dog bit him? This was a veteran animal.
